This was fixed correctly in gcc-4.8 (in utopic), but not in gcc-4.9:

  $ cat format-extra-args.c
  #include <stdio.h>

  /* printf extra arguments example */
  int main(void)
  {
        printf("%s\n", "argument 1", "argument 2");

        return 0;
  }
  $ gcc-4.9 --version

  $ gcc-4.9 -O2 -o format-off format-extra-args.c -Wno-format
  format-extra-args.c: In function ‘main’:
  format-extra-args.c:12:2: warning: too many arguments for format [-Wformat-extra-args]
    printf("%s\n", "argument 1", "argument 2");

With the fixed version in gcc-4.8, the output should look like so

  $ gcc-4.8 --version

  $ gcc-4.8 -O2 -o format-off format-extra-args.c -Wno-format
  $

gcc-4.9 still needs the attached patch applied.
